Does that haircut go well with stripes?

Former Illinois governor Blagojevich was convicted Monday on 17 of 20 counts related to shady dealings to sell the vacant Senate seat created when President Obama was elected.

Leaving a trail of mucous behind him as he left the courtoom, Blagojovich claimed to be stunned, which pretty much demonstrates how utterly stupid you have to be to look for out and out bribes to fill a Senate seat.

I know that all politicians are suspect where honesty is considered, but shameless corruption is despicable.  Hopefully it's also rare.  Bad policies we can withstand; incompetent leaders we can tolerate.  But rot from the inside is the quickest way for our Republic to fall.
